I managed to find Martha's emigration. Says she is from Draperstown (correct) and is going to North Dakota to brother in law R. Withroe. I don't have him on my tree but will work on it. There is usually a second page which gives a relative where she is leaving from but haven't been able to access that.

As for Robert in 1937, three brothers would be Henry, Samuel and Hugh. Two sisters would be Sarah and Jane which means Martha Ann died before 1837.

Hi RJ, would it be possible to know the names of Hugh's three nephews in 1973. His brother Robert had sons John Fred, Clifford H., and Robert Vernon.

Thanks RJ. It is great to have this obit. Poor fellow. I really do think that it is their sister Martha who emigrated in 1899 and is on the 1900 census in North Dakota. But her death just does not show up on the records so far. And not on any family trees other than one which says her death was sometime in 1909 somewhere. Thanks again for your help.

There is a marriage of a Martha Leacock to Albert H. Harwood Jan 1, 1903 in Cass Co., North Dakota. If this is the correct Martha and she died in 1909, should be under Harwood.

I have emailed the North Dakota State Archives for the marriage record of Martha Leacock and Albert H. Harwood in the great hopes that it would have her parents' names on it. Or maybe one of her brothers was a witness. The Archives said it would be hit and miss for the parents' names. I also asked for Martha's death in 1909 although I have no indication that that is true.

There is a marriage of a Martha Leacock to Albert H. Harwood Jan 1, 1903 in Cass Co., North Dakota. If this is the correct Martha and she died in 1909, should be under Harwood.

Here's what I'm seeing and a possible scenario of sequence of events.

Could Albert H be Albert W?

In 1900 Albert W is married to a Tena/Tina

1900 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M9VX-CBQ

Tina died in 1902. Age and POB match. She is buried at Riverside Cemetery.

Cemetery records: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:6CGZ-FD3Z

============
In Jan 1903 he marries Martha Leacock. Could there be a transcription error and the "H" is actually a "W"??

Marriage: https://www.rootschat.com/links/01run/

They have a daughter, Mable in Nov/Dec 1903.

Mrs A W Harwood dies 15 Feb 1905. Obit mentions she leaves her husband & 1 child (Mable ?).

Funeral: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/110060672/martha-harwood-funeral/

She is buried at Riverside Cemetery. Same as Albert's wife Tina. Cemetery records list her as Martha Harwood, born 1872 in Ireland. The death & funeral notices only listed her as Mrs A.W. Harwood, but this confirms her name was Martha.

Wow, RJ137. You have done an incredible job of following the numerous wives of A.W.Harwood. I have no doubt that you followed the correct Harwood and all is correct. The sequence of events does fit the rest of the info that I have, except that Martha died in 1905 instead of 1909. Only one comment, the clippings you attached for the death of Martha in 1905 are labelled death of Sarah.
Now I have some other relationships to sort out, such as Mable's uncle Finlay aka Phineas.
Thanks ever so much for this wonderful information.

According to an online tree, Albert W. Harwood's mother was Eveline Cook Dodge so perhaps Finlay Dodge was a brother or a nephew or ........
